Linares 1988
Compiled by suenteus po 147
--*--

The 6th Linares International Grandmaster Tournament was held at Linares, Spain from February 23rd to March 8th in 1988. Eleven grandmasters and one IM were invited to compete in the round robin event, including (in order of ELO): Jan Timman (2675), Alexander Beliavsky (2645), Predrag Nikolic (2630), Artur Yusupov (2620), John Nunn (2615), Ljubomir Ljubojevic (2610), Lajos Portisch (2610), Kiril Georgiev (2595), Murray Chandler (2590), Johann Hjartarson (2590), Maia Chiburdanidze (2560), and Miguel Illescas-Cordoba (2495). Because no tournament was held in 1986 and the candidates final between Anatoli Karpov and Andrei Sokolov was held in 1987, three years would pass between the fifth and sixth Linares international tournaments. The twelve participants stayed at the newly constructed Hotel Anibal to avoid previous situations at hotels noted in earlier Linares tournament collections. Luis Rentero would eventually buy the hotel to permanently host players for the tournament each year. Although Karpov would not take part in this year's edition, he would be replaced by the World Women's Chess Champion, Maia Chiburdanidze. Karpov's favorite time control of 40 moves in 2 hours was also used. Baturinsky was the chief arbiter and the tournament was a grand success, in large part to the success of Jan Timman's adventurous chess play. He won the tournament, a full point and a half ahead of second place Beliavsky. The tournament was also the final GM norm won by Illescas-Cordoba. The final standings and crosstable are as follows:

01 Timman 8/11 * 1 0 1 1 1 1 1 1

02 Beliavsky 7/11 0 * 1 1 1 1

03 Yusupov 6/11 * 1 1
